"People like scary stories. There's a fascination with fear themes, and we want to face those things in a weird, subconscious way." - Mel Gibson
Four of the biggest stars in Hollywood will be gracing our TV screens next week as part of Gogglebox Ireland. Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, John Lithgow and Mel Gibson will all take part in the special episode.
It's set to air on Wednesday, November 22nd at 10pm.
The lads are in town to promote their new movie Daddy's Home 2 which opens in cinemas next week. They appeared at a huge premiere in Dublin during the week.
They took some time out from their tour schedule in Dublin to join Gogglebox Ireland for a special episode of the show.
The Gogglebox producers are keeping details of the episode under wraps, but they have said that while they're watching Irish TV Mark makes a comment about feeling like it's 1993, and Will declares he’d love to take part in a particular Irish reality show.
All four get gripped by a love triangle storyline in a popular weekly soap as well.
Don't miss it next week, it's sure to be hilarious.
Mel Gibson and John Lithgow both have revealed their favourite scene in 'Daddy's Home 2' was the "stuff with the thermostats".
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the UK premiere of 'Daddy's Home 2' at the Vue Cinema in London's Leicester Square, Lithgow said: "We all loved the thermostat scene. It was the perfect piece of dialogue for four actors and anytime oh take something that trivial so seriously it's so funny."
His co-star Gibson also echoed his sentiments and said he enjoyed the "stuff with the thermostats".
The scene sees Kurt demanding to know who touched the thermostat in the log cabin and he first accuses Don (Lithgow). After denying the claims, Ferrell's character Brad also asks to know who turned it up to "85 degrees". The three discover it is Dusty's daughter Adrianna (Didi Costine) who say she is allowed to "fiddle with the thermostat" at home.
When Dusty comes into the scene, Don says, 'Oh Dusty, you might as well give her your wallet and your 41k while you're at it," with Brad saying the thermostat is "a sacred covenant. I cannot believe we are even talking about this. It is madness".
